    Long range or short range?

    7mmMag, I hunt north of Dover and south of Red Lion.(500 yarders are not too common.300-400 are fairly common.) York stinks for getting permission though. It took me years to get the places I've got. Everyone is anti' or paraniod of you getting hurt or breaking something. It's a shame how a few...

    Long range or short range?

    skinny shooter, I hunt in Tioga county, around my house you can get maybe 500 yards that safe to shoot. I've been going to Tioga for about 20 yrs now. I love to hog hunt so I don't mind the drive too much.(My wife thinks I'm nuts.) Try that 800 yards. It's a real thrill when you connect for the...

    Long range or short range?

    dallascolt, It's 8.5-25x40. The recticle is a fine plex. I am ok with it. It's about six years old. It's elevation turret been up and down 1000's of times and still on. I should have bought a 50mm though. Lower light and 25 power gets a little dim. 20x and down works great early and late. Greg

    Long range or short range?

    dallascolt, I was set up on a field where the closest shots are around 900 yrds and most shots are between 1200 and 1350. Anyhow, I had just finished shooting 2 hogs in the 1300 range and then he stood up,we tried to guess at what range he was(my range finder doesn't go that far). We decided...

    Long range or short range?

    I think you're right on. 4 years ago I was shooting a 7 rem mag. with a 3-9 scope anything over 350 was a long shot for me then. Last year I shot a buck with a bow a 35 yards, that was a long shot for me. Every deer before that was no longer than 18 yards. With a rifle my longest ground hog...

    308 Sendero

    Ceejack, More than likely it's a 1 in 12" twist. To find for sure, take a cleaning rod with tight fitting patch. Run it in a few inches mark the rod and measure how far in you have to go to make 1 full revolution on the rod. Try it a few times to make sure. Hope this helps. I see I was 3...

    750 YARD G HOG

    Thanks Texas. Ronin Rifles, I'm probably not the best guy to ask about equipment you should have. I only used what I had availible. There's probably a big difference. Anyhow I used a small Chicago lathe with a steady rest. It has a 36" bed. In my opinion it was A little small. Where I worked...

    750 YARD G HOG

    Shaky, I would really like to go up to Williamsport to shoot but I do have a problem. My gun has a muzzle break and it goes over the 16.5 lb. limit. Normally I wouldn't have a problem with taking it off but I leave for Montana in about 9 weeks and I hate to change anything right now. It's a...

    750 YARD G HOG

    Boyd, I'm in Dover Pa. Just out side of York PA. My afore mentioned shootin buddy and I have talked about going to Williamsport to shoot but I am a little afraid of making a fool of myself not knowing benchrest and all, and shooting with all you great shooters. I was thinking more on the lines...

    750 YARD G HOG

    Hey Boyd, do you have access to a 1000 yrd range? I mean one with a bench and all. The fartherst I ever shot this monster of mine on paper was 500yds. And that was off of a truck hood with a 10 mph wind shaking the truck and enough mirage to move a 1.5" dot 1-2" It shot ok, 3.75". I didn't...

    750 YARD G HOG

    There is no event. It's just a friend of mine and myself hunting on farmland off of bipods. There's no benches or anything like that. But if that's what your looking to get in on, we could probably work something out.
